The Mariners could get another look this week at right-hander Hector Noesi, but it will be as an opponent after trading him to Texas for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

So ends Noesi’s once-promising but often-disappointing tenure with the Mariners following his Jan. 23, 2012 arrival from the Yankees with then-catcher Jesus Montero for pitchers Michael Pineda and Joe Campos.

The Mariners open a four-game series Monday at Texas.

Noesi, 27, spent much of last season at Triple-A Tacoma but, out of options, he pitched his way back onto the big-league club in spring training as the bullpen’s long reliever.

It didn’t last.

Noesi gave up two runs in one inning on April 2 in closing out an 8-2 victory over the Angels in Anaheim. One day later, he served up a walk-off homer to Coco Crisp in the 12th inning of s 3-2 loss to Oakland.

The Mariners designated him for assignment on April 4.

Noesi was 2-14 with a 6.13 ERA while appearing in 36 games for the Mariners, including 19 starts, over parts of three seasons.

  1. That trade would be absolutely horrible if Pineda had not blown out his arm. Now he’s back and looking good. Noesi is gone and Montero is currently hot garbage.

  2. Pine tar Pineda!
